Nine-card Nap

This may be described as the last innovation in the game. It is conducted

on exactly similar lines to the five card method, except that nine cards

are held by each player, none being discarded as in the last mentioned

variation, but it has not yet become popular, and in view of the fact that

even with only three players more than half the pack is in use, its scope

is far more limited than any other variety. In this variation the person

calling Nap would have to make all nine tricks, a most difficult and

very unfrequent occurrence. It will be found to be a pleasing variety

for two players who are of about equal skill at the ordinary game,

its possibilities being so different from that method, but we doubt

its ever being made as popular as the five card game.
